Report: Arsenal now eye seven new signings as Edu makes exciting change to transfer plans
Arsenal could now make seven signings this summer in an exciting change of transfer plans, Football London report.
Arsenal chiefs had drawn up a strategy at the start of the transfer window which included bringing in five new players to the Emirates Stadium.
However, it seems that Edu and Mikel Arteta may actually be more active than that now.
Arsenal are said to be closing in on a deal to sign Ben White, and a striker signing is also being prepped for some stage this summer.
Fast start needed
If Arsenal do bring in seven new first-team players then that could be a real signal of their ambition to improve.
The Gunners disappointed last season, as they could only muster up a mid-table finish.
The worry for Arsenal is that such a busy summer could lead to a transitional period.
However, Arteta is unlikely to have time on his side after such a disappointing season last term.
With the investment required to bring in seven new players, Arsenal will surely be expected to hit the ground running.
And it will be imperative that Arsenal’s new additions all hit the ground running, as they don’t have the luxury of being able to bed them all in slowly.
